The Trent and Mersey Canal at Stone, Staffordshire

The Joule's Brewery, built in 1881 for the purpose of storing ale ready for distribution by canal. It is a Grade II listed building. It has long been a canal landmark. Due to the quality of the local water beneath Stone, two brewers were located here carrying on the tradition of beer making that the Augustinian monks started in the 12th century. The most notable, John Joules who brewed beer from 1758, although the brewery closed on the 31st October 1974 having been taken over. The canal played a great part in the export of Beer. Joules once owned a pair of boats that delivered coal to the brewery and as late as the 1950s had the telephone number ‘Stone 1’. Joules draught beer stores and bottling plant remains an imposing building on the canal. (Wiki)
